    Classical marketing suggests that convertors/manufacturers will charge what the market will bear so as long as they can sell them then they will continue to charge the prices they do. Big names sell in high-ish numbers so they should be able to take advantage of the economies of scale but their prices do not often reflect this. It is difficult for the smaller convertors to compete hence the relatively high numbers of insolvencies among this group.

    There is a lot of work in producing a motorhome. Good quality materials are pricey as are good craftsmen but I some time think they are taking the mick with some of the prices. Also do dealers make too much profit on secondhand deals?

    Why are van conversions sometimes the same as or even more expensive than a coachbuilt, & lots of coachbuilts look like a caravan with a grp (fibreglass) adaptor joining them to the cab/chassis.

  4. Janet Madgej says:

    I think some Motorhomes are over priced as all that seems to be different from the previous year is the upholstery so why are they going up year on year?

      Hi Janet,

      Nowadays caravans are built to a certain specification which may have an affect on the price. Swift’s SMART and Elddis’ Solid are just two examples of the specific techniques now being used by manufacturers. Some caravans come fitted with safety and security devices too which again could impact the price.
